Trading for Westbrook is going to be expensive

28

I don't know if this has been talked about before on here, but this is the first I've heard of it so I thought I'd post it. Ken Rosenthal reports that Jake Westbrook will receive a $2 million bonus if traded, and his salary will increase by a pro-rated portion of $1 million. So, if he's traded on July 31, that will add approximately $2.3 million to his $3.6 million salary for the remainder of the season. This could certainly make it more difficult for the Indians to trade him and it may be part of the reason we haven't heard many rumors about him lately. Of course, the Indians could throw in some cash to pay for those bonuses and make it easier to trade him if they really want to get something done.
